Technology for Language Development

Technology brings much of the world together, yet can also be a barrier to participation of some communities in the global community.

SIL software supports fieldwork

in linguistics and anthropology by streamlining collection, analysis and archiving of language and culture data.

SIL facilitates the development of fonts for non-Roman and complex scripts so that language communities and people working with them are able to use their writing systems with technology such as computers and mobile devices.
A project of SIL International’s Non-Roman Script Initiative, ScriptSource, provides valuable information about the world’s scripts and alphabets. It currently provides access to information on over 170 scripts used for the writing systems of thousands of languages.
